1

Where does Covalent bonding happen?

In a compound between two non-metals

2

How do two atoms bond in Covalent bonding?

They share electrons

3

Properties:

Low boiling point

They dont conduct electricity

4

Why small molecules have low boiling points:

> Small structure
> Low amount of energy needed to break attraction
> Weak intermolecular forces between molecules

5

Why small molecules dont conduct electricity:

> There are no free (delocalised) electrons to carry the charge
